I wish I knew what is going on!

04 Aug

After waiting a while to get it, on Friday I received 3 units of blood that lifted my haemoglobin to 118. That should take care of the immune levels as well to fight the viral chest infection I’ve had for a couple of weeks.

And then …

… yesterday afternoon I started to bleed again. I had lost 450ml by bedtime and a total of 720ml up to 10.30 this morning. That is 75% of what I got 5 days ago! I would love to know why these bleeds suddenly happen, and then just as suddenly stop. I also think it would be great if some surgeon could just knick into my abdomen and cut out the offending 5cm of duodenum that has the damaged tissue. If I could get that cleared up, my quality of life would improve dramatically because apart from these bleeds, the metastases themselves don’t seem to be causing me too many problems.

    By way of a quick intro, my name is John Tan and my wife is Jennifer Lee. We are so blessed by your prophetic ministry when you visited Chong Yew Chzon’s home in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Your prophecy still rings loud and clear in our memory bank and we know the Lord has spoken to us through you. We are now attending a grace based church named The New Covenant Church in Kuala Lumpur with brother Chzon, where he is also taking a weekly role of chairman for the sunday services. We pray and hope that you will recover well in your cancer as we know that Jesus has paid for your healing on the cross when the roman soldiers flock his body to shreds and by his stripes you are healed. We hope to be able to meet you again. Jennifer and myself do follow your blog regularly to see how you are faring on a weekly basis.
